A 7-year-old girl’s lemonade stand was shut down in Everett, Washington, while elected officials and local authorities continue to ignore a nearby homeless encampment.

Every summer, Elsa LaMaine sets up her lemonade stand at Everett's Rucker Hill Park and sells drinks, treats and flowers, according to KING 5. Ironically, she donates the proceeds to a local organization that helps the homeless.

Elsa told the outlet "There was a wicked witch who called the ranger," referring to a neighbor who complained to the city's parks department which shut down the stand. According to Elsa and her grandmother Cherie LaMaine, a park ranger showed up last Saturday and told them to close the shop because the city doesn't allow people to sell products on public property.

A naked man walked out of the woods and into the park in the middle of  interview Elsa and Cherie's interview with KING 5 about the closing of the lemonade stand. The man was later spotted at a homeless camp a few blocks away.

Neighbors told KING 5 they were upset that the city would take the time to shut down a lemonade stand while a nearby homeless encampment remains and brings crime to the community. Nearby residents have reportedly called the police many times over the encampment at Rucker Hill Park with almost no results.

The homeless problem has become so bad in the city that Everett recently instituted a "no sit, no lie" ordinance prohibiting people from sitting or lying down in certain areas of the city.
